St. Vincent Health

Looking toward the future, St. Vincent General Hospital District has embraced the concept of a health campus where specialists, primary care, Lake County Public Health Agency, and other health-related offices reside in the old hospital building and synergistically complement services in the adjacent, new hospital facility.

Imaging

St. Vincent Health Imaging Department is staffed by skilled and compassionate professionals, offering convenience and minimal wait time for scheduled appointments.

We deliver rapid test results to your provider for the following imaging services.

Ultrasound

Very high-frequency sound waves produce an image of many of the internal structures of the body. This procedure is painless and produces very precise images of certain parts of the body. With our ultrasound, we offer obstetrics imaging, abdominal imaging, vascular, arteriovenous fistula surveillance and assessment, vein mapping, and more.

CT or CAT Scan

A computerized tomography (CT) scan combines a series of x-ray images around the body and viewed at different angles to output cross-sectional images of bones, blood vessels, and soft tissues in the body. The benefit of a CT scan is that it provides more detailed information than a simple x-ray.

A CT scan has many uses, but it’s especially helpful to quickly examine people who may have internal injuries from accidents or trauma. A CT scan can be used to visualize nearly all parts of the body and is used to diagnose disease or injury, or for informing medical, surgical, or radiation treatment.

CT Low Dose Chest Scan

A low-dose computerized tomography (LDCT) scan of the lungs can detect signs of lung cancer. Lung cancer screening is recommended for older adults who are longtime smokers and who don’t have any signs or symptoms of lung cancer. Early detection increases the probability of curing lung cancer with treatment.

X-Ray

An X-ray is a short, painless exam that produces images of bones and other structures inside the body. Walk-ins for x-rays are welcome with a provider’s order.

Bone Density Scan (DEXA Scan)

A DEXA scan measures bone mineral density and is a tool used to detect osteoporosis. With bone loss, the outer shell of a bone becomes thinner and the interior becomes more porous. Normal bone is strong and flexible; osteoporotic bone is weaker and subject to fracture. Prevention and treatment of osteoporosis minimize the risk of fracture of the spine, hip, or wrist.
